Checkers is a solved game, the bots would take all your money imo.

Checkers has a beauty all its own. To say Chess is more difficult means little. Go is more difficult than chess.

Re: I am addicted to internet checkers.

and checkers sucks because there's an algorithm for it

beating a computer at checkers is impossible, much lameness.

these statements are meaningless. the difficulty of any of these games is dependent on your opponent. Now if you meant the difficulty to master these games... that's a different story.

Go is not more difficult than chess, it is just different.

both have strategies that evolve over time and have countless possibilities for moves to do. the difficulty of the game is not in playing the games but knowing how to counter the opponents attack while pressuring your own maneuvers and attacks


also checkers is like limit chess as someone else has said

Don't tell me. Let me guess: no limit holdem is harder than limit holdem.

I disagree.

not only will they take your money, they can kill you too:

In the 1990s, the strongest program was Chinook, written in 1989 by a team from the University of Alberta led by Jonathan Schaeffer. Marion Tinsley, world champion from 1955-1962 and from 1975-1991, won a match against the machine in 1992. In 1994, Tinsley had to resign in the middle of an even match for health reasons; he died shortly thereafter.
